Don't get me started about this movie. I know I may come across as cynical sometimes but I am only ever trying to be honest with my reviews of movies (I despise getting a good review of a movie only to find out it's garbage). This movie even for a ninja movie is absolutely atrocious but if your aim is to get a good laugh from an unintentional comedy then you can't go wrong with this flick. It is so bad it's good  -

I've been looking for License To Drive for ages! However, I can't seem to find it. It came out in 1987.

Oh yeah, I was typing so fast I forgot to put 1988 and put the wrong date instead. I've seen the film loads of times, I just can't find the DVD of it.

I dare say that you would find the DVD if you kept looking. I would be quite confident that it would have had a DVD release.

I'm pretty sure it had a DVD release, it was well received at the box office. [Smile] I might just have to look on Amazon. [Wink]

this has never had a dvd or blu ray release and the vhs is very scarce,it's hostage aka hostage:the christine maresch story from 1983 based on true events during the early 80s in australia about a wife who discovers her husband is a terrorist and a member of the nazi party.

saw this years back and i remember it being a pretty solid thriller and the fact it was based on true events made it even more rivetting!

Not seen hostage in quite some time atomik but I do remember thinking it was a pretty tense movie and also that if I ever got the chance that I would pick up my own copy.

I originally watched the old uk Medusa home video vhs rental tape which had some pretty ace cover art which as we know was the norm for a lot of there releases.

When you do get chance atomik give it a watch I reckon you'd probably like it!

this is one film that seems to have more or less vanished and that is the 1986 comedy - miracles starring tom conti,terri garr and paul rodriguez.

anyone ever checked this one out?


 -


also the the 1988 boxoffice flop - vibes that managed to recoup less than 2 million dollars of its 18 million dollar budget starring cyndi lauper,jeff goldblum and the late peter falk.

this was given a us dvd release back in february 2009 but has long gone out of print,the vhs is pretty scarce also.

i'm sure there will be a few rewinders that have checked this one out at somepoint!

anygood?

I honestly have never heard of Vibes. It sounds like a good 80's movie. I just found out last week that Jeff Goldblum is my dentist's cousin. Every few years my dentist's family has a reunion, and if he can, he comes to the family reunion,

When I was doing film school the producer for Wolf Creek gave a talk. She said that with all the money that goes into making a movie and to make it worth while you need to make at least 5 times what the budget was. So even a movie that recouped more than the budget can still be considered a flop. Vibes sounds like it done really well [Big Grin]
I do actually remember seeing this at the video store but never hired it.

Never heard of Miracles.

Dentistry seems to be a preferred occupation of actors relatives / siblings. Near where I live Richard Roxburgh's brother is also a dentist.

You should try to wangle an invite to the Goldblum family reunion. I bet Jeff Goldblum would be a pretty cool bloke to talk to. Just don't arm wrestle him [Wink]

I have seen both Miracles and Vibes and wouldn't waste my time with either. In fact, Vibes was a large-scale disaster in its attempt to make singer Cindy Lauper a movie star. The thing tanked so badly that it was in and out of theatres in a week during the summer of 1988. Biggest problem with it was that Goldblum, one of the most intelligent and likable actors, had less than zero chemistry with ditsy non-actress Lauper. But I didn't expect much from the director of Sesame Street Presents: Follow that Bird, Ken Kwapis, whose style is more suited to TV.


I think that you are right, Bernie. Jeff Goldblum is a Pittsburgh guy, and from what I've heard, super nice and interesting. He'd be fun to have a beer with, and, yeah, I'd stay away from the armwrestling. [Smile]

I own Vibes on vhs and watched it around ´08 but remember hardly anything. Needs a re-watch.
Anyone seen the ´91 Cyndi Lauper film Off and Running? I have also that one and i think i´m going to have a Cyndi night soon [Smile]

So, I take it that you're not going to positively contribute to my Sesame Street Presents: Follow that Bird thread?

So, Lauper was ditsy? I kinda always thought she would not be like that for some reason. It surprises me after that box office bomb that she would have managed to get any movie role. As a director I would have been like, "So Cyndi, have you ever done any film before?" with Cyndi answering "Have you heard of the 88 flop, Vibes?"

Have several copies of Vibes left on VHS. I agree its not great by any means but it takes me back to the eighties even though it is a nineties release.
